A JUDGE in Granada has charged 10 Roman Catholic priests and two other Catholic workers with child sex abuse.
The 12 are accused of abusing four teenage boys between 2004 and 2007.
The most serious offences allegedly took place in one of the priests’ houses.
Pope Francis telephoned one of the victims in November to offer his apologies after the man wrote a letter to the Vatican.
Following the call, the Archbishop of Granada, Francisco Javier Martinez, and fellow priests prostrated themselves in front of the altar of Granada’s cathedral to seek pardon for sexual abuse in the Church.
